Have you heard about the Omaha Symphony’s 14-15 season yet? One word: Pixar!

Symphony Joslyn

Symphony MasterWorks (two subscription options)

Movie Music

Symphony Rocks (two subscription options)

Family Series

What to look forward to?

The Family Series has been a great discovery for me this year. My kids love going to the pre-show activities before each one – there’s an instrument petting zoo – and then there’s the entertaining performance itself. If you haven’t gone to one of these kid-friendly shows, you’ve got to take your littles to one of these! The 2014-2015 season offers four Family shows at a kid-friendly time (2 p.m.) and at a family-friendly price. We went to the Spooktacular last year, and I highly recommend seeing it this year on Oct. 26! That show is followed by “Symphonic Space Odyssey”  on Jan. 18, 2015, “Thomas’s Adventures in Music” on Feb. 22, 2015, and “Mermaids, Minions, and Dragons” on March 22. Oh yeah, I said Minions. My son is going to be in heaven.

Pixar In Concert 2

The Movie Music Series looks pretty cool next season, too. Check out what’s coming: “Monster Mash of Scary Movies” on Oct. 18, “Pixar in Concert” on Feb. 14, 2015, and “Casablanca” on May 23, 2015. You get to hear the score played live to the movies you’re watching. The “Monster Mash” one is right before Halloween and you’re invited to come in costume. The “Pixar” one will feature clips from 13 Pixar movies. Kids will love that one! And “Casablanca” is, well, a classic to see repeatedly.

Check all series offered by the symphony here.
